If you are a regular reader of Neil Gaiman’s blog, you will occasionally see a picture of him holding up a devilishly-horned tomato in the right-hand margin of the page. (He has rotating photos, which is very cool.)
I thought the photo also cropped up in his photo gallery, but apparently I’m wrong about that.
Somehow, the muses that connect us all have cross-pollinated my tomato patch with a hint of the Gaimanesque.
If I start writing about graveyards, you’ll know why.

Awesome tomato! 🙂
I am jealous that you grew that tomato!
You say tomAto, I say… wow!
that is the oddest looking tomato i have ever seen… so cool 🙂
Stra-a-a-a-a-ange. Very strange.
On a different note, aren’t you glad you don’t have to worry about your parents getting soaked by Fay?
We were talking about that with Mom last night!
Thanks for sharing your funky tomato. One of my favorite songs comes to mind…..
“There ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better
Than bacon ‘n lettuce ‘n homegrown tomatoes
Up in the morning, out in the garden
Get you a ripe one, don’t get a hard ‘un
Plant ’em in the spring, eat ’em in the summer
All winter without ’em is a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin’ and the diggin’
Every time I go out and pick me a big ‘un”
“Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What’d life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can’t buy
That’s true love and homegrown tomatoes”
lyrics by John Denver……
I hope you enjoyed it and hum it all day long!
Don’t forget to make a batch of fried green tomatos too. YUMMY!!!!!
Holy cow, it’s like the Son of Devil Tomato! The Hellboy of Tomatoes.
Sah-weet, it looks like a chibi anime character tomato!
I like that the bottom one looks like it’s sticking out its little tomato tongue. “I say ‘nyah’ to your threats of marinara and salsa,” it seems to be saying.
That is too cool!
There must be a homeschool lesson in that tomato……
By the way, Just finished Fever! It was GREAT!
oh, and watch out for what happens when you EAT those horny things . . .
I love his blog. He’s so quirky.
I’m on a private group with a number of women I’ve known for a while, and one of our more hilarious exchanges has been when we send each other photos of our rude vegetables. It’s surprising how many there are out there…
So very cool. How fun!
Love it! Yours actually look like Gaz Pacho the Tomato Man. ;}
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with being connected with Neil Gaiman, even if it’s only through tomatoes.
